San Francisco Bay Kayaking Tour

Paddle with us through the stunning natural waters of Point Reyes National Seashore in search of an experience that only a place with such ecological importance has to offer. A bridge away from San Francisco Bay , Point Reyes is a perfect place for the citified to unwind and build upon their base level of kayaking skills. Our hardshell kayaks are the perfect vehicle to paddle efficiently along the shoreline, searching for the seals, bat rays, and leopard sharks, and migrating birds that lay claim to the area. Due to closures during seal pupping season, our tours will take place in either Drakes Estero, or Tomales Bay (between 300-500 seal pups are born in Drakes Estero every Spring).
